I think that's a lovely idea, he'll be delighted that you thought of him.

We got my Dad USDollars as he's planning a trip to America in April with my Mom. Combined bday and retirement present. Does he have any plans for his retirement?

[color=indigo:2odlc63y]If he has a hobby like golf get him a round of golf at a fancy club to start off the retirement [/color:2odlc63y]

A round of golf is a good idea, thanks Mrs O'Brien, I'll look into that. He doesn't really have any plans Wifey-Pooh, he's a really active type, he's always out and about doing things. I'll talk to H2B tonight and see what he thinks of the golf idea or something like that. Thanks a million for your help girls!
